What's For Dinner: Italian Sweet Chicken Sausage Patties

We like this "burger" recipe from "365: No Repeats" by Rachael Ray. I'm posting for my friend Elisha. I thought I had included this here in the past but I couldn't find it.

ITALIAN SWEET CHICKEN SAUSAGE PATTIES
1 1/2 pounds ground chicken breast
1 tablespoon grill seasoning, such as McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, 1/3 palm full
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup tender sun-dried tomatoes
10-12 fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan, plus some to drizzle
2 cubanelle peppers, seeded and sliced
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 crusty kaiser rolls, split
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 deli-cut slices of Provolone cheese


Mix chicken with half of the garlic, fennel seeds and grill seasoning. Pile the sun-dried tomatoes on top of each other in small stacks, then slice into thin strips. Coarsely chop the thin strips and add to the bowl. Stack the basil leaves together, then roll them up into a log. Shred the basil by thinly slicing the log (this makes a chiffonade.) Add the basil to the bowl. Drizzle EVOO over the bowl. Mix the ingredients together and form 4 patties, 3/4 inch thick. Cook for 5-6 minutes on each side in the preheated skillet.

Heat a second skillet over medium-high heat and preheat the broiler, placing the top rack at least 6 inches from the heat.

To the hot skillet, add the 2 tablespoons of EVOO (twice around the pan), then the peppers and onions. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Cook until just tender, about 6-7 minutes.

Toast the rolls on a broiler pan under the hot broiler. Place the remaining garlic and the butter in a small dish and microwave for 15 seconds on High to melt the butter. Brush the toasted roll tops with garlic butter and reserve. Leave the bun bottoms on the broiler pan.

Place the patties on the bun bottoms, then top with the peppers and onions and sliced Provolone cheese. Place the chicken sandwiches under the broiler again for 30 seconds to 1 minute to melt the cheese. Set the buttered tops in place and serve.
